Little Otter likes to play in a carefree, unabashed, utterly otterly way.
Mom warns Little Otter, "Be careful!"
Dad says, "Stay close!"
But does Little Otter listen? Oh, no! No. No. No. Little Otter thinks he's a big otter now, big enough to take care of himself. But watch out, Little Otter, because no matter how big you get, it's good to have loved ones looking out for you.
